In a bid to improve the goalkeepers skills, FUFA is organizing a six day advanced goalkeeping course
The course that will be held from June 22 -27 at the FUFA Technical centre is targeting 30 participants from premier league clubs, 2nd division, women clubs and other interested participants.
The participants will be trained by goalkeeping expert Frank Petersen from Denmark who arrives in the country on Thursday.
“Goalkeeping is one of the specialised areas of football and our analysis showed that not much efforts have been done in the area with the last FIFA Course in Uganda conducted in July 2016. It is an area of priority this year within our activities and we are pleased that the FUFA Executive Committee gave a green light to this course,”stated FUFA Football Development Director Ali Mwebe
“Frank is an ex-professional goalkeeper and an experienced goalkeeping instructor with UEFA ‘A’ Goalkeeping License, and has worked with a number of clubs in Europe and Africa. We believe he will add value to our human resource in this area for the benefit of football in Uganda. We have made contact with Frank through our good external network, “he added.
